Society Of Piaget

The Jean Piaget Society, established in 1970, has an international, interdisciplinary membership of scholars, teachers and researchers interested in exploring the nature of the developmental construction of human knowledge.

The Society's aim is to provide an open forum, through symposia, books, and other publications, for the presentation and discussion of scholarly work on issues related to human knowledge and its development. The Society further encourages the application of advances in the understanding of development to education and other domains. The name of the Society was changed at the 1989... Show More

This is a very interesting website. The information is presented in a clear
manner. The links are easy navigated. This website is full of information of
Piaget. You can learn about his life, his many theories, and his many
contributions to the world of psychology.

This site has an interesting biography of Piaget. It also has a lot of relevant
links, but overall doesn't really add to a students knowledge of cognitive
development.

Technical Remarks:

I spent only a little while going through this site as there wasn't that much to
read. It would not be useful for enhancing teaching and learning other than to
provide links to other relevant pages.

I reviewed the material by skimming through and reading the differnt things the
site had to offer, and what was interesting to me. I spent probably 15 minutes
reviewing the material that i found interesting. The material accurately
presents concepts educationally. It gave alot of explanation of his life, and
what he did.

Technical Remarks:

If you're interested in this type of material, i think it is very effective for
learning. I learned things about Piaget that i didn't learn in my Psychology
course, that was interesting to me. It was very easy for me, since i've used
this site before. But i feel for first time users it would be very easy.
